I am trying to install SambaPOS on a netbook with Windows 8.1 operating system (64 bit). The software installs without error. However, as soon as I click on the POS icon to start the software, it crashes with a pop-up stating “SambaPOS has stopped working. Windows is checking for a solution to the problem”. I am installing the software with default settings. SQL server is already installed on this netbook with instance name “sambapos3”. I have used the software earlier on Windows 7 professional and it worked fine.
I have tried the following versions of POS - 4.1.38, 4.1.40 and 4.1.32. Result is same in all cases.
